My Mother used to own a Cafe and so I used to cook there some. I also used to live on a farm where I could have a big garden and used to can and freeze a lot of stuff. In fact one year everything we ate came from our farm (or our neighbors farm) except for things like milk, butter, flour etc. We had beef, I raised chickens, we traded some chickens for pork from our neighbor, we hunted so we had venison, I had a very large garden, we picked berries so made jams and syrups, I canned fruit like peaches and pears....... It was so much fun.
My favorite things to cook
I love pasta dishes.
My cooking tragedies
I absolutely CAN NOT make good banana bread no matter what recipe I use. I also have lots of trouble with pancakes of all things. LOL
